Mr. Russo helped me resolve a very complicated situation
Thanks to Mr. Russo, I got my J-1 waiver, despite being told by three other lawyers that I would not be able to because of government funding that was involved in my J-1 stay. Mr. Russo was the first lawyer I spoke to about my situation that gave me sensible advice, a good sense of what to expect, and viable alternatives. I cannot thank him enough for his patience and professionalism throughout the long and complicated process. Because of government funding I received during my J-1 stay, there were additional steps needed throughout the process -- he always advised and prepared me for each step in great detail. He was not only able to provide advice that eventually led to a waiver, but his attitude and knowledge helped me to stay calm throughout the process despite there being many stressful ups and downs. I would highly recommend Mr. Russo to anyone needing assistance. Thanks to his help my husband and I are now able to apply for my green card. Thank you so much for your help, it literally changed our lives!

Highly recommend working with Mr. Russo!
I have worked with Mr. Russo for the past two years, beginning my career changing OPT to an H1B and subsequently from an H1B to a Green Card. Since the beginning Mr. Russo consulted with me in great detail and attention. He was able to lay out the path we would need to take since the beginning to the very end, he gave me an idea of the time it would have taken and gave me both best and worst case scenario preparing me for anything that might happen. Something extremely exemplary that made me trust him fully with all my petitions was when I went to Canada for my petition interview. On my way back (since I drove) I was going to cross the country border well after work hours, and Mr. Russo waited on an update from me to make sure I was able to enter the country with no problems and everything went smoothly. Aside from his incredible qualification, he has always been on time and always responded to me within 24h or less. He did his job thoroughly and make me always feel overly prepared. He communicated well and set my expectations to what they should have been. He underpromised and overdelivered at all times. I cannot say enough words to recommend working with him, not only because my petitions were successful but mostly because of the person who he is. I know he will deeply care for his clients and always tell the truth on the situation ahead. His passion for cultures transpires in how he treats his clients. Look no further and schedule a consultation!
